BBC radio ran a little human interest story about wild honey cultivation in the Ajara region of western Georgia, where farmers entice the local bees to nest in hollow logs which they hoist up into trees, to protect them from bears. As the reporter followed her guide into the forest, sort of cooing with delight all the way from just being there to dipping a finger into a piece of freshly harvested honeycomb and tasting, I felt indescribably refreshed by getting a little news that didn't leave me horrorstruck.
